Another Year Older and Deeper in Mischief
Last Update: Jun 6, 2023
He's Still Here
With the strength of a startled gazelle, I have once again managed to forage enough to get another year under my belt.
It is getting to the stage where I have become one of the survivors of my rapidly thinning crew of crustaceans. In my younger days we started out by calling ourselves "Gear Jokers" Incredibly cringe-able now looking back on it.
However, it was and is my life and I accept and own all of it . I think most of us when we get to "that certain age" accept who we are, warts and all. And reflecting on what we did when younger is a great trip.
The great thing in my life though, is where others stopped and grew up, I did not. It was starting to happen (Growing Up), then I ran away from home at 49 and got cancer at 55. I saw the light, truly. I saw the light and my grandfather telling me it is not my time yet.
Officially I died on the operating table but that is when I got my second wind. Considering I had cancer of the bowel and ended up with a colostomy bag for 3 months, I think 2nd wind is a pretty good pun. I have some amazing stories teaching with a colostomy bag to 6 and 7 year olds.
It might be dinner time so I won't go into "squeemish" details apart from the fact I caused one cleaner at a public school to instantly resign..lol.
But my life has been great and still is. I am in love and my wife loves me, so who can ask for more.
Yet I have more, with this fantastic community of like-minded entrepreneurs working towards goals that most people give up on when they are young.
So, I am looking forward to my birthday tomorrow.
I just had to help carrying in a cake and heard some muttering.
I believe I know what is going to happen!!
If I am even more obnoxious than I normally am tomorrow, I apologize in advance.
I do believe Dr Worm will be visiting at some stage and even though I try to keep that door closed, the sneaky bugger may find a way in. Lol.
P.S. Oh yeh 65 is the magical figure, but I don't feel a day over a 100.
